no, YOU'RE off topic
I was a little shocked and so disappointed when I read this article. This is is not something I would ever expect from the Univeristy of Michigan Student Fraternities and apparently more than one Fraternity was involved with $50,000.00 in damages.
This is something we criticize MSU, OSU for when vadalism occurs after a hugh bowl win. What happened here? U of M has more class than this!
Wow - What is going on here?
I have personally stayed at these resorts had a great time, partied and we have never left damages in our wake of the groups I was with.
This is bad!
Edit: I am more surprised at some of the posts on here thinking that this is not University of Michigan or Mgoblog related. I have seen too many posts of stupid student activities of MSU and OSU starting fires, etc. after winning a bowl game and these same people on here believe that $50K in damages caused by Fraternities of the U of M is not worthy of being on the board and that it does not have an affect on the U of M. Hopefully not a lasting affect, but it does when it is highlighted in the news that these students are from the University of Michigan that caused this kind of damage to the personal property of Resorts in Northern Michigan and if you think that this will not be in the news nationwide you are under estimating social media.
The season opener will pit number eight Michigan against top ranked Florida on February 6 at USF Softball Stadium in Tampa.
Michigan's out of conference schedule also includes #3 Alabama, #4 Florida State, #10 Baylor, #16 Arizona State and Michigan will play a conference series at #15 Minnesota.
#18 Nebraska is off the regular season conference schedule, although a meeting in the Big Ten Tournament is definitely possible.
In a tradition that should be familar to MGoBloggers...
Noted hack writer Michael Rosenberg wrote a hit-piece against the Patriots over "deflategate" that was complete crap writing (though what would one expect from Rosenberg, right?). It was noticed by a sportswriter in Boston, who wrote a very funny and thorough fisking of the whole thing, which I'd encourage you to read it here if you want a laugh to brighten your day. My favorite quote from the fisk piece is this:
This is stupid. This is lazy. This is irresponsible “journalism” from Sports Illustrated. This should not be published, period.
EDIT: to make it clear, here's the link to the fisking, in case you missed it in my text paragraph above: LINK I'm not linking to Rosenberg because eff that guy.
But, but...didn't LaCanfora say he was gonna be our coach???
He'll be assistant coach with focus on the offense and offensive line (but he's not OC).
A serious case of bad decision-making. I don't care what you think of your front office. Leaving a head coaching job in which you have been good but not great when there is no certainty you will land another is a very bad idea (even if you are guaranteed $4M).
By only a small margin, the team was the first to cross the finish line on the last day of the competition. Overall, Quantum finished roughly two and a half minutes ahead of the second place team, Petroleum Institute.
The team has a history of strong performances in global solar competitions, but this is the first race they have won on an international stage.
One more layer of firsts was the team’s partnership with Abu Dhabi University, ADU. More than a dozen ADU engineering students joined the U-M squad throughout the event.
“This was a really, really good experience, and it was fun learning about how the car works,” says Mohamed Mukhashin, a fourth year mechanical engineering student at Abu Dhabi University. “Everyone was very friendly and it was impressive to watch their work ethic. Hopefully in two years we will have our own car and be able to be in the race with our new friends.”
The team was awarded their trophy by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi at the opening ceremonies of the 2015 World Future Energy Summit, which kicks off Abu Dhabi Sustainability week. Quantum will be on display in various venues through the weeklong event.
